SACRAMENTO REGIONAL TRANSIT DISTRICT GRANT FOR THE BUS MAINTENANCE FACILITY 2 COMPRESSED NATURAL GAS FUELING EQUIPMENT PROJECT

<< Return to Projects

The Sacramento Regional Transit District installed three new compressed natural gas (CNG) dispensers at its bus “Maintenance Facility #2.” The new 1,500 standard cubic feet per minute CNG dispensers will support 40 buses. Future transit needs are projected to increase by 150 percent; these dispensers will be needed to accommodate the expected growth in bus services. The fueling station will also be available to Twin Rivers Unified School District and neighboring transit agencies.

Grant Amount

$500,000

Match Funding

$4,200,000 from the project’s participants.

Project Benefits

The CNG-powered buses supported by the station will displace over 2.6 million gallons of petroleum-based diesel fuel each year, in the process producing 21 percent fewer emissions than similar diesel vehicles and reducing emissions by more than 7,600 tons of CO2 per year.
